Whiteout.io is a German email that provides software to securely communicate with anyone.  Whiteout comes in the form of a Chrome plugin, web client, and mobile apps (IOS & Android).  There is also a private beta email service that they offer.  Whiteout lets you use any email address with their service, all you have to do is login like any other client.  It took me less than a minute to login and shoot off a test email.  Whiteout’s goal is to provide a secure and easy to use service that can run on multiple devices.  I found that Whiteout did a great job of doing so, I know that my messages are secure because of end to end encryption.  But at the same time I do not have to deal with the hassle of installing plugins, or anything of the like.  It’s just login and go, no problems to deal with.  Take into note, that this is still the beta test, so not everything is perfect.  The private beta email service is quite nice, it is very similar to the regular client and seems to offer the same features.  I know that PGP is one of the most secure methods of communication today, but it is also well-known for being a pain to use.  But with Whiteout, all the pain of using PGP is gone, and so easy to use that it’s just as easy to use as Gmail or other email services.  Whiteout could easily be used by everyone, as it removes the hassle of PGP without the loss of security.  The developers behind were kind enough to give me some Beta keys to the private beta email service.If you would like one just enter your email in the subscribe box and comment on this post, and I’l send you a key.
